    I worked at Groupon full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The culture - hands-down. Everything is changing and moving so quickly, and in the beginning, your input was extremely important. It was amazing to be part of something that was growing so fast and changing the way people shopped online. There are so many opportunities to move around internally and management is great to find the right position for you.

    Cons

    The changes with commission, bonuses, overtime fluctuated too much - this is where a lot of inconsistency was. One month you had overtime then the next you didn't, then you had it again.

    I worked at Groupon as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    talented people when business was starting up, great atmosphere, dynamic and challenging. highly entrepreneurial. lots of responsibility. great brand name and huge business growth.

    Cons

    business model unsustainable, cut throat sales management. taking advantage of cheap labour through excessive use of interns of all ages - good for interns - bad for full timers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    revise business model which is unsustainable, think about customers and clients welfare more.
